Hey, Dudes: Don’t Make These 10 Mistakes During A Divorce

Hey, Dudes: Don't Make These 10 Mistakes During A Divorce

Divorce is always a hot topic with celebs. Amber Rose filed for divorce from rapper/husband Wiz Khalifa, and news that Kris and Bruce Jenner’s divorce settlement came in at $60 million broke. The latter was described as amiable, one that didn’t even involve lawyers but business managers.

Standing there on the sidewalk, I slowly began to understand that despite immersing myself in years of stolen glances, goodnight calls and sun-kissed smiles, it was all over. And even more shocking was the realization that he had always known it would have to end. Read more on Your Tango…
